Who Benefits From Speech Coaching?
Professionals in Every Field!
Working with senior managers and executives from high-profile
corporations throughout the world, David W. Richardson, CSP, has helped facilitate
significant improvement in their executive business presentation skills with his
one-on-one intensive speech development sessions. Any individual who has a product to
sell, an important point to make, or a persuasive argument to present will appreciate the
top performance skills they will acquire from Dave's personal speech coaching.
Business professionals who either feel uncomfortable
with their presentation skills ability or those who need assistance in developing and executing a
powerful presentation, turn to Dave for his targeted critique and practical advice.
Of the executives and managers with whom he has worked, 82% have been
promoted in their company at least once since the conclusion of their consulting session.
Dave's work with senior managers and executives is
typically in, but not limited to, the following areas:
- STOCKHOLDERS, BOARDS OF DIRECTORS, ETC.
Executives, with Dave's consultation, design, produce and deliver sharp, to-the-point
- NATIONAL SALES MEETINGS, EMPLOYEE
CONFERENCES. Executives delivering a "State of the Company"
presentation typically become monotonous, mundane, and even boring.
Focusing upon this as a presentation not just to inform, but to
persuade, Dave has helped executives design and deliver more powerful
and memorable presentations.
- NEW CEO, PRESIDENT. A new CEO or
president can make or break his or her career as a function of the
initial presentation delivered to the new team. This presentation must
be informative, persuasive and, to some degree, entertaining and
motivational. Dave helps CEO's design a powerful presentation that will
cement their credibility with the new team and set forth the new or
continued mission of the company.
- PRESENTATIONS TO SENIOR MANAGEMENT, THE
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. Many careers have been stymied or potentially destroyed
because of the senior manager's inability to communicate his or her thoughts and ideas to the
executive committee in a confident, successful manner. Consultations with Dave have
enabled many managers to grow significantly in their own personal careers.
- SIX SIGMA, ENGINEERS, ACCOUNTANTS.
Technical professionals are invested in specific projects, and their presentations have a
tendency to be overwhelmingly detailed and sometimes confusing to those struggling to
understand. Dave helps even the most technical presenters influence their listeners in an
interesting, motivational fashion.
- PRESENTATIONS TO CLIENTS. Many
executives are top performers when it comes to writing business proposals. Lacking
effective public speaking skills, however, many of their proposals fail to win the desired
business. Dave's one-on-one consultations enable these professionals to deliver a
dynamic, upbeat, competitive presentation which greatly increases the probability for the
prospective client to accept the proposal.
- SPORTS CELEBRITIES. Sport/adventure celebrities have a wealth of captivating information to share with an
audience. Dave's personalized speech development training helps them develop and present
motivational, influential, humorous speeches that will keep them in demand as speaking
- POLITICIANS. Eloquent speakers
have influenced the votes of millions of people just by the way they design their speeches
and relate to their listeners. Constituents select leaders as a function of the passion and commitment they are able to "feel" in the presentation.
- PASTORS, MINISTERS, PRIESTS.
Members of the clergy have an eloquent passion for guiding Christians to the development
and maintenance of a meaningful relationship with the Lord. With today's fast-changing
pace of life, people feel more rushed and pressured than ever before. To reach these
individuals effectively, the message from the clergy must be dynamic, persuasive, and
contain examples and analogies which relate to today's challenges while leaving
listeners with an enriching plan of action.
